ID:	237192 I was using my Tesoro Tejon on the side of a steep hill just adjacent to a cornfield I regularly detect. Got a solid signal but deep. Thinking I had a silver coin I got down to about the 11 in level and found this. Being on the side of a hill the water drained off it nicely and stayed intact

      That is in fantastic condition. I sure wish mine came out looking that good.

        Ha ha thanks Bruce. I've found these things before but always in pieces. Shocked when I got it out of the ground intact and really shocked when I got it home for a couple days and had no condensation under the glass. Gotta love those finds on the sides of hills.

            There is a chance that this is a pretty old clock. If there are jewels in this watch's design, you can get a decent amount of money for it.
